Membership in the Photography Associates helps to support the collection and activities of the Department of Photography at the Art Institute through the funding of acquisitions, the presentation of programs that foster understanding of photography, and the encouragement of private collecting.
Associates enjoy private dinners three times yearly—twice in the company of a prominent artist or scholar and once at the home of a notable collector in the Chicago area. Photography Associates members also receive invitations to at least one special exhibition opening.
The Photography Associates season runs from October to May.
$1,000 individual membership admits one to all events
$1,500 dual membership admits two to all events
$2,500 platinum membership admits two to all events, plus invitations to join photography curators in additional activities at the museum, galleries, artists’ studios, and locations outside of Chicago
For detailed membership information, please contact the Department of Photography at (312) 443-3663 or send us an e-mail.
